Favorite Quote:
Hell is empty, and all the devils are here -William Shakespeare

“Follow me”
Adults set in their ways
Spending all their days
Locked in a daze


“Wherever i go”
The Small children hear
Something not so queer
And the children follow along; acting like volunteers


“And do what i do”
Now they are all grown
Walking together like clones
Not thinking on their own


“When I tell you so”
So, history repeats
And the minorities retreat
As they face defeat.
